Today I decided to write about something that a lot of us struggle with, and that is self confidence. So many of us struggle with low self esteem, and we are always comparing ourselves to our peers, to celebrities, and even to people we see when we are out. This is partly due to the fact that the media gives us such an unrealistic image of how we should be.
The truth is there is no wrong way to be, each and every one of you are beautiful in your own unique ways. If everyone was the same, the world would be a very boring place. You might wish that you were thinner, you might wish that you weren’t so thin, you might wish that you didn’t have so many freckles, you might wish that you had freckles, or you might wish that you had blue eyes instead of brown. We all have things that we wish we could change about ourselves, and things that we hate about ourselves. But our imperfections make us who we are.
Everyone has imperfections, even if you don’t see them. You might see someone while you are out shopping, who you wished you looked like because, in your eyes, they are beautiful in every single way, but in their eyes, they might hate the way they look, and wish they looked more like you.
You might not feel it, but you are BEAUTIFUL in your own way. Yes, you might have imperfections, but everyone has imperfections. Your imperfections make you YOU, and you are so much more than your imperfections. You are perfect as you are, in every single way, whether you realize this or not.
You don’t need to lose weight, you don’t need to gain weight. You don’t need to try to get rid of your freckles, you don’t need freckles. You don’t need contacts to change the colour of your eyes. You don’t need to wear lots of make-up just because your friends do. You are you, and you are perfect just as you are – remember this.
Don’t put yourself down because of your flaws, don’t put yourself down because you can’t see your true beauty. No-one is flawless, and every single one of you are truly beautiful. Love yourself, because there is only one you, and there will only ever be one you. You are unique, you are one of a kind.
Love & light,
